Daniel, I’m unsure of how serious your prosthetic problems have become and I hope everything will be okay until July. I find it difficult to follow your limerick so please forgive my attempt at levity. You will be in my prayers!


If you’re starting to disintegrate
I’d suggest, before it is too late,
to obtain glue and smear
on those parts to adhere
‘till July. Until then, you must wait.

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy



Kindness is a seed sown by the gentlest hand, growing care's flowers.

I must wait till July, but oh, well
we must finish this term: ESL
We're enjoying the class
helping everyone pass
and their comprehension to gel

When their comprehension starts to gel
in the class where you teach ESL,
then I know it will please
and except for Chinese
our nice language can be hard as hell!

Hell is hard in all languages spoken
for the pain there will be more than token
and the flames of the fire
will grow high and higher
and the coals they'll be constantly stokin'

If you’re constantly stoking the coals
in your grill, I’d ask what are your goals
cooking hamburger meat
or hot dogs for a treat?
You may wind up just burning your rolls.

If you're burning your rolls, just slow down
Cook them gently 'til they're golden brown
Cook your meat slightly red
as often I've said
and those eating will give you a crown

If folks give me a crown when they eat
a rare steak or well done piece of meat;
I could sell each new crown
to some folks of renown.
Do you think Burger King could compete?

Burger King would compete if they could
but they don't do their cooking with wood
so they leave it to you
and your oak barbeque
to produce all that rare burger food

When your burger is rare you’ll produce
customers whom you want to seduce
but the food chain is rife
with bugs bad for your life.
Cook well-done burgers; save your caboose.

If your burgers disrupt your caboose
so your constant discharges are loose
give Imodium a try
and perhaps it will dry
up the stuff that's been flowing like juice.
